Merry Strikemas to all who celebrate! The streets may be crowded with word-smiths, but the hallowed halls of Idle Hour were packed with answer-smiths eager to cement their place in history. Welcome to KING TRIVIA!

30 groups rested their feet after a long day of picketing to enjoy the best trivia in the Valley…nay, THE WORLD.

Round One landed at a massive tie at the top, but most important is that every team submitted on time. 

Round Two took a turn toward spots in TV and film, which combined our teams’ least and most favorite topics in one arena! Drunk and on Strike jumped into an early lead and hoped to hold it.

Round Three saw Camp Mohawk demonstrate their knowledge of spines and space as they tore into second.

Round Four saw the silver spot swap again as Three Cool Boys snagged the title from Mohawk. 

Our Drinking Round honored the struggle of our brothers and sisters protesting for their right to a living wage. That’s right, it was a Union Strong celebration, and we had some hard-hitting questions for our teams. Jimmy Timmy Power Hour battled a few rounds before taking the free shots. 

Round Five had our teams thinking about tossed salads and scrambled eggs. Team Charcuterie managed a tricky double to snag second place away, but gold remained firmly with Drunk and on Strike. 

Round Six was a boon for those fools taking Latin in high school. No Thoughts Head Empty managed to rise to the occasion, and suddenly this was a real ball game…because while Drunk and on Strike had a perfect round, they didn’t double. 

Round Seven came down to the choices made throughout the game. When to double, when to skip, when to forget to hit submit. 

Our winners for the night were Breakfast All Day, Drunk and On Strike, and No Thoughts Head Empty.

There’s nothing quite like a night at Idle Hour. Teams come from all around the city to join in the best show in all of NoHo: KING TRIVIA!

33 groups gathered for a night of revelry and riddles, led by yours truly. Without much ado (about nothing) we got down to quizness. 

Round One of course started with a tie, but this was truly massive: 15 teams toppled over each other for first place. However, by Round Two, Quiz Team-A Aguilera had already moved into second. 

Three Cool Boys waiting until Round Three to make their move, and the Wildly Inconsistent folk jumped into the leaderboard after Four. 

Our Drinking Round asked the question: Who was on the receiving end of the first EVER phone call. With what would become their new routine, Emergency Food took the win. And they never looked back. 

Round Five was a downright brutal slugfest as our top teams began lobbing doubles like they were made of them. Unfortunately, that reward also comes with a hefty bit of risk. Leveraging the stakes, Emergency Food jumped into a narrow lead with a single point over Quiz Team-A. 

The top two battled it out round over round, and in the end it was a mere few points that separated the scores. 

Our winners for the night were Emergency Food: All 'Tucker'd Out, Quiz-Team-A Aguilera, and Wildly Inconsistent.

The weather in Los Angeles is a lot like the relationship between writers and studios: constantly chaotic (and somewhat exploitative)! But nothing can keep the masters of mystery from joining forces in Idle Hour for 7 rounds of incredible trivia!

27 teams joined together in every available seat to show off their knowledge and win big prizes. It was a battle for the ages, and we couldn’t wait to begin. 

Round One started with the normal Big Ol’ Tie™, but round two opened up quickly as Emergency Food: Peaches Peaches Peaches (Acoustic Version) jumped into the lead, with five teams battling for second. 

Round Three got the crowd to their feet to watch a live performance of the designated dances (leading to some extra prizes for the competitors), and ended in a three-way tie with Agents of the Zeitgeist, Valley Girls, and Quiz Kid Donnie Smith. 

Round Four caught our teams on the red carpet with some hard hitting gossip, leading to a whittled-down first place spot: Zeitgeist and Valley Girls. But the real shocks were just coming up. 

Our Drinking Round took the National Animal Crackers question to its logical conclusion and had our team battling it out to see who knew the most about Shirley Temple. In the end, Bimbos defeated the others to win the free shots.  

Round Five chilled the leaderboard and opened the door for Emergency Food to step into first, but only points ahead of the competition. 

Round Six and Seven knocked down more and more of the competition, pushing our players to the very edge of their trivial knowledge. It was all coming down to the final seconds!

Our winners for the night were Emergency Food: Peaches Peaches Peaches (Acoustic Version), The Bimbos, and Agents of the Zeitgeist!
